Miami Lakes Hamburger House Party

Hamburger House Party 2018

Miami Lakes Hamburger House Party

After surveying burgers for the Hamburger House Party 2017, I just had to go check out this year’s event. The party took place on March 10, and oh man, was I stuffed. My name is Jordan, and I’m the same guy that played the part of food critic for burgers by reviewing several burger joints that were available at last year’s Hamburger House Party. Here’s a little recap from this year’s event.

The Party

Alright, so at the 2018 Hamburger House Party, there were 19 burger joints showing off their best burger. That’s a whole lot of burgers, but they were all miniature sliders, like the picture to the right. They definitely weren’t anything like the one below:

That behemoth would put someone into a coma by the second burger patty. No, they were all small, and I prepared by fasting for 24 hours, so I was good to go. Now, I couldn’t try all 19. With unlimited beer and wine samples, I couldn’t do more than try nine burgers before I turned to dessert to wrap up the night. The sole dessert I tried was “Sweet Fix,” a brulee cake with rum creme and mango butter, by the “Bottoms Up” GastroPub and Tap House. They didn’t win, however – some empanada did.

History Review of the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Dodge Challenger History

Over 50 years ago, the first Dodge Challenger was built in 1958, known as the Dodge Silver Challenger, to rival the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. Following that was the Dodge Charger, produced to introduce the new 426 HEMI engine from Dodge. Today, both vehicles are still going strong thanks to constant innovation like the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, or simply the performance and control a Dodge vehicle delivers.

Dodge Charger

The first of muscle cars to come from the Dodge automaker was actually a sedan that soon transformed into a bit of sports car with pony car power. When the Charger was first introduced as a concept in 1946, the national public didn’t care too much for it, and the concept was shelved until 20 years later. The first-generation Dodge Charger was produced in 1966, only six years after the first generation Challenger.

Based off of the Dodge Coronet, the first-generation Dodge Charger was designed to be a high-speed street racer with a fastback roof design and full-width tail lamps. Although based off of the Coronet, early Dodge Chargers could easily be mistaken for a Dodge Challenger given that early Dodge Chargers also came with a two-door setup. In its seventh generation today, the Charger resurrected the aerodynamic look of its second generation and consisted of only three trims – the SE, R/T, and R/T AWD, all powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6.

Nowadays, the 2018 Dodge Charger has nine trims to its name, two of which come with an all-wheel drivetrain, two more are a blast from the past, and then we have the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, the sedan version of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. The most powerful, of course, is the SRT Hellcat, powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine, capable of generating 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque with a top speed of 204 mph for the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

No Production Car Has Ever Been Built Like the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

When it comes to high performance pony cars, many consumers think of Dodge, Chevrolet, and Ford. The top contenders for the muscle car market are the Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Corvette, and Ford Mustang. Thanks to the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the Dodge name will be holding the gold medal of muscle cars for years to come. Even with their latest incarnations, neither the Mustang nor the Corvette can match the Demon’s racing times, and no other automaker has done what Dodge did to make the SRT Demon a reality.

Performance

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the only vehicle made to be a drag strip racer from the moment it hits the lot. Many cars can be tuned up with aftermarket components and engineering, such as the infamous Chevy Corvette Exorcist, one aftermarket creation designed to take on the Dodge Challenger Demon. The Dodge SRT Demon is made to be the end all muscle car with a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V8 engine that can generate up to 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque.

Those numbers aren’t even the standard. The only way consumers can achieve that kind of output is by making use of the parts and accessories found in the Dodge Demon Crate. Does that still count as factory produced? Maybe there’s a little controversy there, but when it comes to racing times, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon speaks for itself, able to accelerate from 0-60 mph and finish a quarter mile faster than the big names in the muscle car market, including the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder.
